    Some British(and a Scottish) HeadGear

    Had these a while, but FINALLY got the camera to take decent pictures indoors. Enjoy!

    Korean War era Scottish Atholl Bonnet.
    Badged to the Black Watch. This one has had the tail ribbons trimmed and sewn to a small bow on the back. Made by J.J.&W. Hood & Co. and dated 1950.

    The side with the Black Watch badge


    Korean War era RAF enlisted visor hat
    Made by Compton Sons & Webb Ltd. dated 1954.


    Un-dated Royal Navy white pork pie hat
    No markings anywhere other than owner. D. Reynolds. I have an HMS Warrior tally somewhere here I'm going to put on it.


    Fins...

    My MkVI helmet. Does the flash g on the side, the front, or the back? I'm not sure the cover is on right. Right now, the flash in at the back. It's how I got it, but... The guy I got it from may have moved it at some point.

    very cool Brit headgear,the flash appears to be right in your pic,normally the flash would go on the side,but unless it's been re-stitched to this position it muust be it's true position...cool stuff mate
